A splendid new addition to our 40s separates collection - these fabulous new trousers are an authentic rework of an original 1940s trousers pattern adapted for the modern figure and in modern fabric.
We have selected a new heavier crepe for these trousers - you will really appreciate the quality. Inspired by chic hollywood icon - Katherine Hepburn - who rocked the trouser suit in the 1940s.
Packed with features, this style has a wide leg with turn-up, a high waist band, side zip and fastens with a single shell-look button. The wide leg is approx 22 inches circumference. Deep pleat on the front runs into a strong and slimming crease. Style also has 2 darts on the back. Topped off with contrast top stitching - this is a fantasic and authentic style.
Key 40s features:-
- wide leg
- natural waist fit with deep waist band
- turn up
- side zip with shell-look button
- deep front pleat
- contrast top stitching on pockets & waistband
- 400gsm weight crepe fabric for beautiful drape
Fits on the natural waist with a wide waist band. So comfy.
Very wide leg style is great for dancing and was very typical in the 30s & 40s during the rise of sports casual styles.
Leg length: 32" (approx 31.5 inside seam and 0.5 into rise)
Fabric: Top qualiry rayon/poly with a touch of elastene for stretch
Care: Cool hand wash
Manufactured in the UK
These trousers fit on the natural waist but do have a nice wide waist band which can fit slightly high on some people. The fabric has some stretch but this should be considered as a comfot stretch.
This is definitely a style that will create shape but will require correct underwear ;-)

These are extremely flattering! I hold weight most heavily around my stomach area, and the lightweight nature of these trousers mean they skim over my lumps and bumps. Looking forward to buying in other colours! A fantastic 40s look.
I'm tall (5'11") and plus size so trousers without trying them on is a real anxiety for me. These are GORGEOUS, lightweight, so elegant. I want them in every color! Please give us some fall colors in sizes over 18! Maybe a gabardine? Seriously. I want to fill my closet with these pants!
